In India and Asia children practice yoga as soon as they are able to walk and understand. Children are natural yogis and yoginis - from birth they are flexible and they breathe in natural rhythms. Watch babies and children at play and you will see them spontaneously adopt yoga 'poses'. They have an awareness of their bodies, their feelings and their health - the interconnectedness of mind and body that is yoga.
Our kids yoga, here in Northampton, helps promote a healthy body, without the competitiveness that comes with most sports. Your children will learn how to manage stress through breathing exercises; you will also see a significant improvement in self-regulation, focus, and empathy; improved health and confidence; may even notice them having a better night's sleep. Children's yoga promotes inclusivity and improves their concentration, coordination and balance. There are different classes for each age group that involves games, playful exercises, movement and storytelling to develop body awareness, imagination and help achieve a relaxed state of mind.
